Restriction enzymes, or restriction endonucleases, are enzymes specialized in the cutting of DNA fragments each acting upon specific sites of the DNA molecule. Restriction enzymes are used in the recombinant DNA technology to obtain with precision pieces of DNA molecules to be later inserted into other DNA molecules cut by the same enzymes.
